    Default Ergo vs Hugabub

    Hi all,

    I'm researching at the moment and I've narrowed my choices down to Ergo and Hugabub. Has anyone used both (or even one or the other) and can comment on what they liked and didn't like?

    I'm leaning towards the Hugabub as I like the style of it better but I'm hearning so many good things about the Ergo (although I've heard great things about both)!

    Any help is appreciated

    Default Re: Ergo vs Hugabub

    I have both. I would get both. Hubabubs- while they claim you can use for ages- can only carry up to about 7kg or so before they get way too uncomfy. Also, don't buy a HaB, find a cheaper version or just buy 5m of jersey cotton.
    I use my HaB (well, my homemade copy) every day with DD, once she's too big i'll use the ergo, which you can use up to 20kg but aren't great for little bubs (under 4 months or so)
    Your other option would be a woven wrap- I haven't used one but unlike a HaB they CAN be used for ages. I see preschoolers in them fairly regularly.

    Thanks FearlessLeader I didn't realise the Ergo couldn't be used until about 4 months.

    Default Ergo vs Hugabub

    I have both as well. Our baby is 9 days old and is fairly long in the body. The ergo, even with the newborn insert isn't good for her as her head is above the support area. I got the hub a bub and its perfect for her at the moment. It holds her head in a good position and feels really secure. We will switch back to the ergo once she gets bigger and can hold her own head up

    Default Ergo vs Hugabub

    Exactly what FL said. You need the infant insert to use the ergo before 4 months which is HOT. I also homemade a HAB, if you're going to buy one at least get it second hand, they are fantastic but as only used for such a short time not worth $100 or whatever they charge.

    Default Ergo vs Hugabub

    I agree with both. I got a second hand hab, and loved it for newborn then got an ergo at about 6 months which i still use daily at 14 months, best investment. I just wish id got more into babywearing with my older 2, would have made life sooooo much easier!
